"The Brevard Botanical Garden is in the early stages of development. To date, we have formed a board of directors, obtained 501(c)(3) non-profit status, and have a master plan design developed that will guide us through the development of the garden.

The garden is 5 +/- acres located in Central Brevard County, Florida, just off I-95 & SR 520 on the UF/IFAS  Brevard County Extension Campus with its entrance at 3695 Lake Drive, Cocoa, Florida.

In time, the BBG will be a destination for neighbors and travelers alike to gain an understanding of a happy, healthy Florida yard! The BBG Nursery is a Florida Certified Plant Nursery. The BBG Nursery complies with the UF/IFAS Florida Friendly Landscaping (TM) Practices. We do not knowingly sell plants listed on the UF/IFAS Invasive Plant List.
